Rotor Cross NZ 2016/2017 Season.
there are a few changes this season.
New Class 4S SPEC (4S lipo/6″prop/4 motors) proper specs will be in codex.
3S SPEC and 4S SPEC are our official classes for this season.
OPEN class becomes an exhibition class, no championship will be held
New Chapter in the South Island brings our total to 8, and we will run with these until Feb next year.
National Championship will be held in March 2017 (location to be confirmed) 3S SPEC and 4S SPEC will be on separate days to maximise the numbers who can attend. the Winners will be decided solely from points gained at the event. The exact format of the event is yet to be finalized (as far as heats/scoring method/points/etc)
Chapter Championships – each chapter is holding one championship round. Points from these are counting towards a separate series. called the “Chapter Championship Series”. Your best 4 results (to be confirmed)combined with your result from the National Championship will be used to crown an overall “Chapter Champion Series Winner”.
Will also track the total number of points collected by our frequent flyers and give them an award as well (for the pilots who attend every round possible)
Your local chapters will be running any other events/series that they see fit during the year.
Some chapters are trialing “most laps” where each race is 2 minutes long and you total number of laps are counted. The winner is the pilot with the most laps at the end of the day. Disadvantage is you are racing the clock, not other pilots. Advantages – no swapping frequencies, fast guys/friends can fly together as each round you are racing the whole field
The method used will be announced when the event is posted
Chris Robertson will be our official points recorder, tracking the results and looking at the data, as we may develop a seeding system for big events.
I will upload a full document in the next few days with all the details laid out, the CODEX and website will be updated.
